The rain wasn't letting up Thursday in Rhea County.
Cars nearly washed away and some homes were evacuated.
"So much rain saturated, it's been so long since it's rained, so dry, and I don't think the drains could handle all the rain," says County Executive George Thacker.
Emergency personnel were out in full force.
But, County Executive, George Thacker, says thanks to a grant last year they were able to clear out 2 main creeks that cause flooding.
But, that didn't save Dayton from the high waters.
"This is the first time that it's been, unusual that Dayton is flooding and Graysville and Morgantown's not. They're flooding a little but nothing like what usually happens," says Thacker.
Thacker says nearly 90-percent of the force were out helping residents with accidents and flooding.
The Dayton Rescue Squad was called to aid some stranded citizens at Pocket Wilderness.
Officials say the area can become dangerous-- in an instance.
"It's probably inches deep going across to start with and as they come back down after the heavy rain, it floods here. SO there's nothing anyone can do, you just don't realize it until your across there," says Dayton Rescue Squad Captain, Brian Shoffner.
News 12's exclusive video of the rescue shows the fast, rushing waters.
Rescue crews were able to get the two residents out safely and quickly--- a moment of relief for the victims.
